Title: Surface energy-driven ex situ hierarchical assembly of low-dimensional nanomaterials on graphene aerogels: a versatile strategy

Abstract

A surface energy-driven strategy is proposed for ex situ hierarchical assembly of low-dimensional nanomaterials on graphene aerogels, which is applicable to a broad variety of low-dimensional nanomaterials regardless of their composition, shapes and dimensionalities.
